I would catch the door before it closed and locked behind him. The KOA or some other over priced tent pad camground near Durango was the last time I pulled this feat.
I'll give y'all a Canadian hint: we keep our hockey rinks open in the summer for lacrosse players. Quite often, if you nip in at the right hour, you can squeeze into a changeroom for a quick splash-and-dash shower without any real problem.
I've done this cycling - often with full permission. Other times, folks will steer you to a rec centre/swimming pool, where you can fork over $2.50 for a shower. Still, municipal swimming pool showers are decent, have lockers (!) and get you clean, cheap.
My cycling buddies and I would actually schedule swimming-pool-and-hot-tub breaks into our itinerary. Nuttin feels quite as good as a shower and a soak in the hot tub after eight days and 1000 klicks on a loaded touring bicycle.
